This tool is essential for anyone entering an MBA program. The MBA Survival Kit is a series of programs brought to you by the Graduate Management Admission Council and McGraw Hill/Irwin. This four CD program provides an introduction to Finance, Accounting, Quantitative Skills and Statistics topics and is designed as a review for those entering an MBA program. On average each CD contains 16-20 hours of self-directed learning that explores core quantitative skills used across functional business areas within distinctly different companies, with the user assuming the role of a consultant. The programs guide the student through two key areas of learning that reinforce student skill building using video, animation and consistent feedback. The training area provides a topic overview, animations and practice for that topic. The office area contains client cases. The user, in the role of a business consultant, works through cases in a virtual office setting, to reinforce the skills learned in the training area.
